My radio history started as a Novice in 1959. Upgrading and moving led to ten different callsigns over the years including NA8M, K8HJ, AA8FP, KD8QL, WB8CIY, WA8EIY, WA2VBF, K3IVT, KN9QMQ. I received my Technician license in 1961, Advanced license in 1968 and Amateur Extra license in 1992.

My interests include CW and DX.  After years of trying, I finally made DXCC Honor Roll-Mixed and DXCC Honor Roll-CW.  FOC #2079, CW Ops #792.

I am net control on Wednesdays for the Seagull Net (3.940mHz) and Pine Tree Net (3.596mHz), the Maine state-wide SSB and CW traffic nets.  I am Maine Section Traffic Manager.

After 35 years as a school administrator in Michigan, I retired in July of 2001. In April of 2005 we moved to Waterford, Maine and renovated an 1860's farmhouse and barn.

My shack is in the family room in a roll-top desk. If I roll down the top, the radio equipment disappers.

I have two antennas, a 130 foot doublet up 80 feet and 32 foot doublet up 70 feet at the top.  The long doublet is fed with home brew open wire line.  The shorter doublet is fed with 450 ohm ladder line.  Both go to special chokes designed by Chuck W1HIS (Thanks, Chuck!) and a tuner for each antenna. Here's the 130' doublet.
It's hard to see the doublet.
Here's the current gear and RF Path, however it's always changing -
I do some contesting.  Check http://www.3830scores.com/ and enter my callsign to see my scores.  I use a lot of software - DXLab Suite for logging and spotting, N4PY for rig control, SmartSDR for the Flex and NaP3 for the K3 or Ten Tec Orion panadapter.
My Paddle is a Begali Magnetic Professional or a Begali Single Lever.  Here I am with Mr. Begali, himself
